 V  NUMBEB 3.  AINSWOETH, BEITISH   COLUMBIA, SEPTSMBEE 26, 189L  TEH OEHTS.  ACTF.tL   WORK.  .  O      i  V  y,  *  Little is being done in Hot Springs district  outside the work on the Skyline, Number One,  Fourth, and Tenderfoot. A few inenStrc prospecting the Dellie, a claim that is said to be  bonded to \V. II. Mum It of Toronto. At the  Skyline 10 to 12 men are at work in that mine  and in doing assessments on adjacent- claims  owned by the McC'une company. Superintendent McDonald says the crosscut tunnel from  the bottom of the shaft is 110 feet long, and was  an expensive piece of work owing to the hardness of the rock. He says the company will put  a mill on the property as early in the spring as  )ossible. "The ore in sight will justify the out-  ay," he said, "and I believe the Skyline will be  oiie of the best properties in the district." At  present mr. McDonald is overhauling the shaft-  louso erected on the Krao and getting the hoist  and,engine in place. x\ boiler has been ordered  from Butte, Montana. When asked if he could  not purchase such machinery to better advantage in Canada, mr. McDonald replied, "Yes?^  but> 1 could not. get it in before navigation^  closed. A representative of the Doty Engine  Company of Toronto was here Jast 'week, and  his figures were, satisfactory, biit full (i weeks  would elapse before the boiler could be delivered  on the ground. We could not wait that long,  so I ordered the boiler from Butte, and .will  have it on the ground within a month." When  all the machinery is in place, sinking will be  commenced on the Krao and continued during  the wilder. At the Tenderfoot, superintendent  Roche has tlie working shaft down 81 feet:  Most of the material for I he shaft-house is on  the ground. Things arc moving along slowly at  the Number One, superintendent Thompson reporting the output of shipping ore at 2 to 2h  tons a day. The vein has now a pitch of about  00 degrees, the ore'eontinning of good grade.  Merely an  Incident   in  iiiy  Life.  Chicago Tribune: It happened in Chicago at  :* A. M. The man was shabby and travel-stained  but there wasn't a supicion of liquor in his  breath when he stopped a newspaper man at  the corner of Dearborn and Madison streets and  asked the way to Halstcd street. . w lN  "Straight ahead," said the newspaper man,  point ing west.  "Then which way must I turn to get to  Thirty-sixth street tasked the man.  "Thirty-sixth and llalsted!" exclaimed the  newspaper man: you'd better take a llalsted  street ear.    There'll he one along here soon."  "i didn't, ask you about, a car," said the  shabby man, rather sharply.     Which way must  i turn?"  "To your left when you reach llalsted street."  "Thank you!"  The-shabby man started along hut. the news-;  paper man stopped him..  "Hold on," he said, "are you going to try to  walk there?"  "What, business-is that of yours?" retorted  the ot her.  "But.you can't do. it ?"  "1 cant!" There was a trace of bit terness in  .the'n.iaiVs voice. "I've walked in from Jackson  park."  "Whv, you could have cut across and gotten  to Thirty-sixth and llalsted with half the walk."  "I suppose so, but  I didn't know it."  The shabbv man started on again, and again  the newspaper man stopped him.  "Look here," he said, ^haven't you got any  money?"  "That's/none oi^ your business," returned the  shabbv man. 'Tv'e got a grip at Thirty-sixth  and' llalsted, and after I've got that you'll not  find me in Chicago long."  There was something in the man's manner  that made t he newspaper man persistent-.  "Let me give you car fare, anyway," he said.  The shabby man turned on him sharply.  **I haven't asked for charity, have I?"  "No; certainly not."  ������������������Well, I don't want any. I've borrowed  money, but���������"  "Call it a loan," said the newspaper man.  "Will you consider it as such?** asked the  stranger.  "Certainly." j  "And expect to get paid?"  "Yes."  "(Jive me your address, and I'll accept half a  dollar. And, young man, accept a little advice  from a man who is plder than you are. Never  quit ������tyie job until you are sure of another. I  came here from Grand Rapids to better myself.  J was told that labor was in demand and wages  up in the skies. I've been here a week, and now  I am going back to see if 1 can get my old job  again.' And if the little woman and tlie baby���������"  He hesitated. "I didn't leave her much. I  didnYhave much, and I expected to send for her,  but I���������rwell, 1 couldn't. And she's so patient and  good and I've���������-" He suddenly straightened up  and said : "Young man, I'll send you this within  a. week if 1 ^et my job back."  He sent it.  A Well-Known Capitalist Dead.  Wednesday last, at Spokane, there passed  y a man who had accumulated great wealth  in the mining districts of the Pacific coast and  who had several interests in Hot Springs district. E. J. Brickell's death was not unexpected.  For a year or more his health had been failing,  and a few days ago all hope of his recovery was  abandoned.    He went  to California last March  uponthe advice (if his physician, but he returned  to Spokane in July.lit tie improved in health,.  /������ince then he has failed gradually; and TiTefmly  night he had a sinking spell from which he neve/*  rallied. Mr. Bricked was 71 years of age, having been born at Liberty, Indiana, in 1&20. In  hSiH he removed with his father to Michigan.  He seemed a common school education. In  IS 10 he joined the tide of emigration pouring  westward, and on March ������>. 1850, landed in San  Francisco by way of the isthmus. He settled in  Illinoistown, where he resided for several years,  when he removed toTruckee, where he engaged  in the lumber trade, building up a large business  in the manufacture of lumber, sash, doors, etc.,  the firm name being Brjckell & Kruger.  Six years ago he came to Spokane to engage  in business, and upon his arrival he purchased  an interest in the mill and water power on the  site of the present property of the Spokane Mill  Company. Four years ago the Spokane Mill  Company was organized and mr. Brickell became, president of the company. Two years  later messrs. Brickell and Cannon organized the.  Spokane Water Power Company, of which mr.  Brickell also became president. About the same  time he assisted in organizing the Traders' National hank;-of which tie was elected president,  lie retained the presidency, of'all the above.'institutions up to the time of .his death. He was  also president of llolley, Mason. Marks' &Co.,  Ban in &' Co., the Spokane Bottling Company,  the Old Dominion ..Mining'-Company, and the  'Columbia Mining -Company '--the. last named  company.operating in this district.  People well acquainted with mr. 'Brickell's  business affairs estimate his '.fortune at from  $1.500.0(H) to $L,,(KK),0(X). The Spokane Review  says mr.-Brickell-was broad-guaged, liberal, ami  progressive', and notwithstanding he was.a'very  busy man always found time to be agreeable to  all with whom he Came in contact. He was  liberal and enterprising, and did much toward  the upbuilding of Spokane.  A Number of-Claims  Kondedr" _  A number of claims in Hot Springs district  have been bonded this week at. figures ranging  from $1000 to $10,000, the Ellen, owned by E.  Harrop, .1. H. Fink, and others, being placed at  the latter, figure, and an interest in the Tariff,  owned by George Francis, at the former figure.  FAKE   MIMIXG,  In mining, as in eve/y other department of  human industry, there is a class of spurious operators, as well as the genuine searchers after precious metals. It is often very hard, if not impossible at first to distinguish the legitimate from  the counterfeiters. The latter frequently have  all the characteristics of the honest investors*,  They spend money freely in underground work,  and improved machinery for works. In all  quartz mining sections there are barren as .well  as paying ledges. It is an easy thing to find  quartz, but it by no means, follows' that all  quartz, even in a gold-bearing section, carries  metal in paying quantities. Nature in the formation of gold has worked by an inscrutable rule.;  In one point she piles up her treasures in abundance, and a few feet away the same vein may  be comparatively barren. This very uncertainty  in gold mining is after all an essential element*  in keeping gold in its royal place at the head of  precious metals.  It. sometimes happens that a company; is organized to search for precious metal from the  best  of motives, and enters upon tnetwork of  active mining in the proper spirit. After a while,  the prospecting perhaps does not come up to expectations, and the next thing in order is to.get  out of the speculation without loss, or may be'  make a profitable enterprise out of it, in spite of  the non-productive character of the claim.; Then,  a raid is inaugurated upon the public by means  of stock gambling.   TJie stock of the worthless  scheme is thrown upon the market, and every  ��������������� method known to the shrewd operator is resorted:  tpjn .order,to boom the: shares,.  0Meantime, itn-^  provementscontinne to be made at the, mine qtv  a. magnificent scale for the sole purpose j)f deceiving the public as to the value of the. property.    A mill is erected and started on ore that  is known to fall below the paying standard. The  utmost secrecy, however, is enjoined  upon all.  employees, anJl over the door one is apt to read5  the  words  "No admittance." '   Reports of big  yioJHsare sent out, but no one outside of those  actually concerned in cleaning up and retorting  the bullion,  is able to tell  the actual product.  Everything is kept in the dark.    A dividend is  declared, the money for which is supplied hy the *  insiders for the object of working oil the stock  upon a gullible public.    In this way the projectors are enabled to feed out the worthless shares  at fat   prices, and so  not only get   out of  the'  scheme without loss, but actually make a profit.  When they have let go in this manner, the bubble bursts, and the swindle is exposed, and too  often a rich mineral section is made to suffer in  the estimation of capitalists by these rascally  operations.   Indications That the .Momins   Will be Sold.  Wallace, Idaho, Miner, 19th: B. T. Lurzarder,  B. W. Tucker. Edwin Reynolds, and J. A. Ames,  all of Milwaukee, are registered at the Fuller.  The first-three named are the probablepurchasers of the Morning mine. An expert examined  the mine several weeks ago for them, and they  are now here to verify his report. They were  met in Missoula the first of the week by receiver-  Porter. They have personally visited and examined the mine themselves since their arrival  and indications are decidedly favorable that the  sale will go. Nothing definite, however, is known  and will not be until the deal is consummated..  If the sale goes it will he for sufficient sum to  pay all indebtedness of the Hussey banks.  Working for Dividends.  The part ies who recently purchased the Neosho  commenced work on that claim this week. The  work will be under the superintendence of mr.*  Wallace, who negotiated the sale, and will be  confined to extracting ore for shipment this fall,  the owners evidently believing that dividends  pay better than development work. Four men  are at work.  .. ���������'.

THE   PLACE   FOR   THE   PROSPECTOR:  The most promising place for a prospector to  exhaust his grub stake, devote his labor and apply the lessons experience has taught him, says  an exchange is upon mineral belts where good  mines have been developed.  As a rule the halo worn by a typical prospector dims as he lingers about a well-developed,  tried and found true mineral district, and becomes refulgent with the reflected light from  some distant new alleged bonanza strike, and  curiously and at variance with the general trend  of,the laws of nature, the more distant the new  district, the more dazzling the light. The uncertain possibilities of prospecting create about  the prospector's life an atmosphereof fascination,  romance and pathos that will never be dissipated  while men are compelled to dig into the earth's  crust to ascertain and obtain the hidden treas-  lire, and impulse and feeling will ever largely  guide the prospector's steps ^ whether working  within a known district or on soil virgin to the  human step. 7  1 lb prospecting in a district known to contain  valuable mineral deposits, the miner has the ad-  vantage of studying formation, the changes in  the character and value of the ore as depth is  reached, together with the further universal fact  that where one good lead or deposit has been  found others of equal merit exist adjacent thereto; nature never created one fissure just 1500  feet in length and then rested, and even if such  a condition really existed, a remote possibility,  it would be a still more remote occurrence that  the discoverer would be endowed with the vision  to exactly enclose the fissure within his boundary lines. This fact has recently been highly  exemplified in Leadville, where, by the aid of a  diamond drill, immense bodies of high grade carbonates have been discovered under the very  heart of the city, far remote from the deposits  which for 12 years have been worked, and this  has been the experience of every old mining  camp. '   '   ���������' .������������������������������������'_.  WHERE   TO   PROSPE:CT.  A few days since a Montana paper suggested that favorable prospecting ground could  always be found in a well-known and developed  mineral district, and now, with all due deference  to the wise men, wise in their own conceit, it  affirms that a most promising place to prospect  for good ore bodies is on a shaft or level where  the evidence tends to establish the fact of the  existence of a strong fissure and also the presence of some mineral, and which workings have  been tried and abandoned by one of the aforesaid wise men, and the wiser the men greater  promise that a mine will he found. Instances to prove this position could be cited in  6onvincing numbers; their occurrence is limited  to no mining epoch nor circumscribed within  the bounds of any mining district; since mining  began, and so long as it continues, which will be  coextensive with the life of man on this or anv  m  Other globe, more men have, and more men will  Continue to labor more industriously with their  opinions than with their hands.  It is a universal fact that at some depth at  some point within a vein where the presence of  good ore is found that substantial shoots or bodies  will ultimately be encountered, and with thison^  principle in view, the man who has the patience  to dig deep and explore by levels is he who will  become the successful miner.  LIBERAL PARTY LEADERSHIP SETTLED.  The Liberal chiefs meet in the great party federation at Newcastle with the question of party  leadership determined." Gladstone will accept  the premiership if victpridris in election, having  sir William Yerndn Barcburt as deputy, with  a, full share of the responsiblities of the lead, in  view of the 1 invited physical resources of Gladstone. When the home rule bill is carried, Gladstone will retire and Harcourt will succeed as  premier. Lord Spencer will head the Liberal  lords and the earl of Roseberry will become  foreign secretary. The federation meeting, as it  will be held before the country is plunged  into a general election, is of exceptional  importance. Over 2000 delegates, representing  6000 different associations, will determine a final  platform, apart from the programme already  recognized^ The S-hour question will be also a  prominent point discussed. The federation committee, feeling the necessity of conciliating the  trades, are manoeuvering for federation of the  8-hour principle in the form of local option. Several liberal associations have already been in-  fluenced to vote for restriction of the hours of  labor wherever a decisive majority of the workers desire restriction.

At the United States naval academy, Annapolis, Maryland, a stately monument way unveiled oi/the 80th of October, 188$). Willi appropriate ceremonies it was dedicated to the  memory of lieutenant-commander Do Long and  and his unfortunate* companions who lost their  lives on tlu>^44=������ajed Jeannetle expedition to the  north ''polar seas. ~i======;=::^.  Throughout tlie annals of arctic explnrat ion no  sadder memorials remain, than the journals of  De Long and the noble men who accompanied  him on that expedition and who shared, with"  him the terrible 'hardships t hat followed in the  train of shipwreck and disaster encountered  amidst the, frozen regions of tlio far north, and  ultimately sacrificed their precious liven in the  interests of seientih'eate discovery. No one can  read the records of their fruitless wanderings  and consequent miserable sufferings, as found in  the published account of the De Long expedition, without being profoundly affected. How  they constantly "yearned for succor. How they  hoped day after day, each minute seeming an  hour, each hour a day. that relief would come,  that thev might again see home and loved ones!  Briefer and briefer became the daily records as  the men grew more4 and more exhausted by  hunger and hope deferred. As t he light of 1 heir  life grew dim the last jottings they were able to  make in their journals were very short. A line;  a word. Then a day on which no entry was  'made;', in a day or two a 'few. words' only, feebly  and pain fully scrawled with blood from an arm-  prick; and then all was over wit li those heroes.  As'the light of a candle burned down into 1 lie  socket, their light failed, ���������revived, for'.-a brief  space,   and   flickered  out.      Darkness   reigned,  peace came.  All J hrough the fall and winter of 1SS1 and the  spring of1SS2 chief engineer .Melville, U. S. N.,  conducted a 'relief party and.searched-diligently  along the coasts-of Siberia for any trace of the  lost De Yong'and his men. After repeated'failures and many disappointments they were at  last successful. Successful! There was no need  then for a-relief party. Relief had come'long,  before. Teh bodies were found in t he snow near  a place called Monument hill,'in. the Lenadelta,  March l^lrd, 1SS2. They were immediately moved  from the;spot where ."first discovered ti^ a high  point of land not far distant to prevent, them being washed away at the annual overflow of the  Lena river. A rough board box was constructed  in which the bodies were carefully placed and  the box carefully covered. Over t his was reared  a pyramidal pile .of timber and stone, and above  all a. rude cross was raised. Mere the bodies remained from March, 1882, to December, 1883.  The search party had accomplished its purpose  and returned to the United States.  '.Lieutenant Barber and master Schultze, both  of the United States naw, were intrusted with  the mission of fetching the remains to the United  States, the government having appropriated the  sum of .$25,000 for the purpose. Again the ice  regions of the north were tempted, and the cross  which marked the resting-place of the valiant  commander and his men was found'. The bodies  were swathed in felt and enclosed in metallic  caskets. The party was more than two months  on the way from eastern Siberia to New York  city, where it arrived with its charge on February 20th, 1884:. Two days later, on Washington's  birthday, the dead heroes were buried, and to  their memory were paid eloquent tirbutes of  honor and respect.  The long a tedious homeward journey,was  made by various methods oftravel, according to  the accommodations of the country traversed.  More than 5700 miles of the'distance were covered on reindeer and horse sleds. At Orenburg,  Russia, the first line of railroad was met, and  from that place to. Hamburg, Germany,,about  2300 miles, the journey was made by rail. The  entire distance, between the Lena delta and IsTew  York is nearly^2^200 miles.  On the 12th of,January, 1884, ther������ homeward  bound party reached the old fortifed town of  Orenburg, on the extreme eastern border of  European Russia. All along the line of travel  the grave nature of tlie mission was understood  by the people. At every considerable village or  town the American party was formerly received  by the chief dignitaries of the place. Addresses  of sad welcome and of God-speed were delivered  to them, and they were shown the greatest consideration and the most marked attention. At  Orenburg, on the day of their arrival, the 129th  anniversary of the establishment of the university of Moscow was being celebrated by the  Orenburg branch of the Imperial Russian Geographical Society, and a large concourse of  .learneel.men were gathered there. The Americans were cordially uid respectfully greeted,  and the occasion was marked by a splendid address, deliyered by count P. N. Raspapoif, one  ���������of the eldest and most distinguished members of  the local branch of the society. %  The rugged, hearty nature of the Russian is  capable of profound feeling, and in his vigorous  language he is able to give eloquent expression  to deepest, emotions. Let the following glowing  ���������words'of. tribute testify to that capacity and  this ability. Count Raspapoff, Speaking for the  assembled society, said;  " Into the kingdom of science as into the kingdom of Heaven" man enters through a narrow  gate, and .conquests in'the illimitable domain of  knowledge are not made without sacrifices. But  these.sacrifices'leave their bright trace on the  path of human development, and posterity preserves a gratified remembrance of them in the  hearts of its most enlightened representatives.  Among the sciences whose boundaries are extended under circumstances of the greatest difficulty, that part of geographical science: whicli  has to do with the arctic regions of our planet  holds one of the first places. Not a few7 human  lives have been lost through voluntary martyrdom in the icy deserts of the extreme north.  ���������Before us in these rich coffins lie 10 silent but  ���������eloquent witnesses of that unhesitating self-sacrifice of whicli only men inspired by an insatiable thirst for knowledge and gifted with an in  domitable will are capable. /    ,  "This is neither the tfine nor the place to  dwell on the details of the undertaking which  caused the lamentable loss of these new martyrs?  to science and to their yet undiscovered compan-.  ions, especially since the circumstances attend*  ing the voyage of the Jeannette are now knowti  to the entire reading wrorld, and enlightened  humanity in every part of the globe is watching^  with intense interest the transfer of the.se re-f':  mains over our boundary from.the depths, of  Asiatic snows. The Orenburg division of the,  Imperial Geographical Society of Russia, that  youngest brother of the greatfamily of learned  geographical societies, could least of all he an in-,  different spectator of the recent deeply pathetic,  journey of these bodies of men who died beneath*  the banner of science. In the, name of thissec-  tiou, of which I have the honor to be one of the  oldest members, I permit myself to greet you,-  gentlemen, the worthy comrades and fellow*  countrymen of illustrious citizens who perished  in an unequal struggle with insurmountable obstacles placed in their way *by nature itself. I  consider it the greatest honor to he empowered  to express feelings which I am bold to hope are  entertained with perfect unanimity by my respected colleagues.     =-��������� :  "We Russians sympathize with that extended  development of science and civilization of the  great American nation. Nothing could be more  in accord with our own minds and bur own  expansive natures. We can not, therefore, at  the present moment avoid expression before  you, our trans-Atlantic friends, the sincere respect with which we are filled, in view, on the  one side, of the devoted act undertaken in the  name of science, and, on the other, of those  enormous efforts and sacrifices with which  American society^distinguished itself in seeking  for those lost members of a glorious but baffled  expedition.  ���������'������������������Today our country celebrates the 129th anniversary of the first university in the ancient;  capital of our Moscow. Here on the confines of  European Russia happen to coincide with this  anniversary these sad and solemn rites over the  remains of' those fearless navigators, soMearto  us all here in the north, who found for themselves an untimely grave in our icy regions.  But only inanimate nature in Russia, is cold.  The Russian heart is quick, and Russian feeling  is ardent under its frigid covering. Therefore,  on this memorable day of the founding of the  ���������first temple of science in Russia, this oldest contemporary of the United States of America, we  may greet and speed with good wishes you, the  respected representatives of the great American  republic, not only in the name of a section of  the Imperial Geographical Society, but in the  name of all workers in Russian science, to whom  it is most becoming of all to honer with a thankful recollection men who have placed on the  altar of knowledge that which to each one of us  is dearer than ought else���������his own life.  Eternal memory to them and unbroken peace  to their souls. To them has come a sad but glorious fate; for in their persons is justified the saying of the Divine Founder of our faith: Ihere  is no sacrifice more pleasing to God than wne^  one lays down his life for his friends; and tne;  best friend of mankind is science.  i *-  V  -: ,'J  ,"~ ,-i- I  EOT SPRINGS HEWS:  AINSWORTH, B. 0., SEPTE]  i:w  26. 189L  Wright Street,  AINSWORTH.
